The first thing I do is check my phone and what do I see…Chris Cornell of Soundgarden had died overnight.
I have been in shock and bawling all day. I have a story to tell. Hopefully, tomorrow I will be able to put my feelings down and recount this surreal day in Seattle.
We’ve lost a legend, one of if not the best rock voice in history…4 octave range.
This city — his birthplace — and the world mourns deeply today.
And that dream…not even kidding. That’s the truth. I can hardly believe it.
Photo my own. I was the first to lay flowers at the fountain and at KEXP radio station today. Space Needle went dark from 9-10pm in his honor.
